Piedritas Verde / Dry Forest conservation & community ecotourism

EcoSwell works to develop vulnerable communities sustainably by implementing projects that propel the SDGs in Peru's northern coast. In Piedritas (pop. 400) 65% suffer from extreme poverty and resort to logging their valuable Tropical Dry Forest. 90% of this biodiversity hotspot has been lost due to deforestation. EcoSwell has implemented the “Piedritas Verde” project with local families to generate an alternative source of local income by transforming Piedritas into a community-led ecotourism birdwatching destination. In the first months by March 2020, 250 visitors had been received, building a sustainable local economy through conservation.
